Akron Municipal Court to Offer Halloween Weddings on Thursday, October 31
09/23/2019

Area couples have an opportunity to marry at a “boo-tiful” historic venue on Thursday, October 31 thanks to the Akron Municipal Court and the Akron Civic Theatre.

Akron Municipal Court Judge Ron Cable will perform Halloween weddings from 10 a.m. to Noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Akron Civic Theatre, located at 182 S. Main St. Costumes are welcome.

Sixteen couples were married on Halloween at the Akron Civic Theatre in 2018. The Akron Civic Theatre has generously donated space for the event.

Appointments are first-come, first-served and must be scheduled and paid for before October 31. Time slots will not be added once all appointments are booked.  

Prior to the ceremony, couples must obtain a marriage license from Summit County Probate Court. They then must pay a cash-only ceremony fee at the Akron Municipal Court Clerk’s Office in Room 837 of the Harold K. Stubbs Justice Center, located at 217 S. High St. The fee is $25 for those in the court’s jurisdiction, Akron, Fairlawn, Bath, Richfield, Springfield Township, Lakemore and the Summit County portion of Mogadore. There is a $40 fee for those residing outside the jurisdiction.

After paying the fee, couples should take their receipt to Room 901 in the Stubbs building to secure a time slot.

Couples can use the Main Street entrance or the Bowery Street entrance on the day of the ceremony. No professional photographers are permitted.

For more information regarding scheduling, contact the Akron Municipal Court’s Chief Service Bailiff Patricia Williams at (330) 375-2592.
